In denial? Gunigundo claims Duterte is confusing AMLC with BSP because both have the same address and are led by Amando Tetangco – Politiko

Deputy Governor Diwa Gunigundo is calling out President Rodrigo Duterte for lumping together the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) just because they have the same address and the same big boss, Amando Tetangco Jr.

Deputy Governor Diwa Gunigundo is calling out President Rodrigo Duterte for lumping together the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) just because they have the same address and the same big boss, Amando Tetangco Jr.

“We are not the AMLC…Maybe the President connects BSP with AMLC, because it is based at BSP Complex, then the chairman is the BSP governor. It’s an independent body,” told reporters shortly after Duterte called for the resignation of “greedy”, “corrupt” and “lazy” BSP and AMLC officials.

Gunigundo stressed that BSP does not serve “politics” and reiterated that it was an “independent” agency.

In a speech in Malacanang Thursday, Duterte said: “I’m going to charge all of you there, criminally. I’ll count one to three, and if you don’t resign, I will treat you as a drug addicts. ”

“You guys there are all corrupt, bantay kayo sa akin. I will bring you down. Tetangco is about to retire. Better prepare there because I’ll give you a whack. You are all, you are all corrupt and serving [a]master. You are not supposed to engage in politics, God damn it,” the President added.

Gunigundo apparently has a short memory because it was only a month ago that Duterte also publicly berated the BSP and AMLC in a speech in the National Bureau of Investigation anniversary.

But whether it’s the BSP or AMLC, one thing is certain: Tetangco has refused to act on the request of the Department of Justice for full bank records that would pin down Sen. Leila de Lima on drug trafficking charges.
